    USU students spending a week helping middle school students unplug

    LOGAN – Last October, a group of five Utah State University Health and Wellness students began work on a program designed to help Mount Logan Middle School (MLMS) students put down their technology and strive to do something else with their time.

    This week MLMS students, with support from Principal Spencer Holmgren, will learn about the “Break the Screen Routine” to help the kids swap out their phones for other activities.

    The program starts Monday and ends Saturday, March 2, on “Global Day of Unplugging.” Saturday will also include an event at USU’s Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art for the community to spend time putting their phones down to tour the museum, and to enjoy free family-centered activities including a scavenger hunt and refreshments.
